Give Your Bedroom a Facelift

Remodeling Your Bedroom
Whether you're re-financing, looking to sell, or just bored giving your room a makeover can give you a whole new outlook on life, and your home! There are some aspects that should not be ignored as they can make ALL the difference!
Windows are the focus of a room, after square footage and space. Windows not only allow light to enter the room, they also allow you to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. Window treatments should highlight the window. Popular window treatments are:
- Blinds- Blinds come in a variety of colors, shapes and lengths. They give a bedroom an instant makeover. Blinds are also inexpensive.
- Shutters- Perfect for opening, throwing back and letting the sunshine in, shutters evoke a dramatic flair.

Bedrooms should be restful and peaceful. Keep the lighting soft and romantic. Types of lighting for the bedroom include:
- Recessed Lighting- Recessed lighting is a popular choice. The room can be dimmed or brightened with just a simple turn of a switch.
- Track Lighting- Track lighting is becoming more popular. Less expensive to install than recessed lighting, track lighting can also be brightened or dimmed to fit your mood.
- Wallpaper- Choose an elegant pattern or just use a border to accent your bedroom.
- Paint- There are thousands of colors to choose from. Choose a restful color or go bright and loud. Add some art to showcase your color choice or some sconces and candles.
- Shelving- Create extra space by building elegant shelves to hold your collectibles and books.

Furniture is usually the focal point of a room. A brass bed loaded with fluffy pillows creates a romantic wonderland. Heavy, dark, solid furniture with rich colors, such as maroon or champagne, implies unlimited luxury. Use blonde woods and flower prints to give the impression of a blooming garden.

Remember, the key to a successful remodel is focus. Combine paints, fabric, furniture, lighting, flooring and window treatments in a way that pulls the room together. You may love your remodel so much, you may never want to leave your bedroom.
